Actor Danny DeVito has passed away at 72 from complications regarding Dysplasia
Danny Devito, beloved actor has passed away due to complications from multiple epiphyseal dysplasia.
DeVito was a famed actor known for his many roles. Earlier last year the actor faced a close call with the Grim Reaper, but he survived.
During an appearance on “Conan” Tuesday night, Charlie Day explained how DeVito, 71, almost drowned.
“We did an underwater sequence, and Danny’s incredibly buoyant, like a buoy,” he said. “It was hard to get him down, so we really had to weigh him down to get the shot where we’re all holding hands.”
The rest of the cast was able to swim up after the shot was over, but since DeVito was weighed down, he struggled to get up to the top.
“And when the shot was over and we were all trying to get back to the surface for air, we all quickly got through the water but because we weighed him down, he sort of got halfway and was going nowhere,” he said. “And that look of panic in his eyes of like, ‘This is the end, these guys killed me.'”
Safety divers pulled him out, but DeVito was done for the day.
“He went straight home,” Day said. “He was like, ‘Goodbye, that’s the end of filming for today.’ I don’t blame him.”
Luckily for “It’s Always Sunny” fans, though, it wasn’t DeVito’s last day on set.
